Polishing Petrified Wood

I have a piece of petrified wood that is about 15 pounds. It's basically "raw" in that it has not had any chemical cleaning done to it. I washed it in warm soapy water, and then when it dried, I tried brushing it with a dry toothbrush. It's fairly clean now, but I'm wondering if it would look better if I cleaned it more aggressively. Would cleaning it with chemicals or polishing it help? Would the inside of it have better colors if I broke it in half?
